Entry Description:

Dummies is a photographic research about the disquieting appeal of mannequins' features. A collection of portraits where the subject is an allusive presence remaining resistant to a complete interpretation in a vacuum of reality. The point is to focus on the double identity of the mannequins, revealing the ambiguity of their fake human attitudes which aim to live. Like in a debunking Surrealist game, the viewers are left to fill the images with vibrant traces of experience inspired by personal memories and their own imaginations. In this way the strange creatures taken from everyday life allow the unconscious to express itself and become alive.
